of taking the economy off the fiscal cliff is harry reid, president obama, he says he wants to compromise. he says there's only two options here, take the economy off the fiscal cliff or do it my way. that doesn't sound like something he's willing to negotiate in good faith. so, listen, republicans want to restore confidence and certainty to this economy. i don't think want to play brinkmanship, the way to do this is through pro-growth tax reform. i'll quote the numbers again. you'll get ten times the amount of revenue by growing the economy, $750 billion versus the measly $68 billion that the president's proposing by punishing success. i think that would work far better. >> and you're saying revenue because by taxing the wealthiest americans, it cuts off what has been referred to as job creators from actually getting americans to work so we have more americans working that are then paying into the tax system. >> thomas, i'm one of those job creators, those small business people. i could have explained to him what's on the minds of job creators, the people that make those investment decis

seems to be on board harry reid said he wants to make it much harder for the small membership of the minority to block the desires of the majority. even though we have a record number of women and minorities in the house come january house speaker john boehner has announced who will chair the 19 major house committee, and get this, they are all white men. the house democrats have not released their top announcements yet but we'll have nine high ranking democrats who will be women or a minority. we'll be back after the break. do you share the sense of outrage that they're doing this, this corruption based on corruption based on corruption. >>i think that's an u>> i'm not prone tot. understatement, so explain to me why that is. i think the mob learned from wall st., not vice versa. smiles make more smiles. when the chocolate is hershey's. life is delicious. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks or jumping into the market he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime

and he doesn't want to be we've learned an awful lot about how the president and harry reid behaved behind closed doors from woodward's book, at a don't think it reflected well on the white house. but let's see that. the second point, and these are i think very both doable, and the second one is that whatever is agreed to do, that he needs to be put in writing and online for seven days so that not just the lobbyists in washington, d.c. can know what is in it, that every american can know what's in and do research and look at and have other people disaggregated and take a look at it before either the house or the senate vote on it. there's a new verb in washington called to be correct, and those of republicans who felt they were sold a bill of kids by the bush white house and the treasure department the treasure department is to do this, do this, it's an emergency. white emergencies require expenditures of money, $350,000,000,000.6 months later strikes me as the question as to whether they've been cheated or not. they think they're being cheated to be transported to be rushed out in

that's caused significant gridlock in the past, senate majority leader harry reid thinks a deal can be done by mid december, well ahead of the deadline. >> we have the cornerstone of being able to work something out. we're both going to have to give up some of the things that we to are a problem and so, it's like when we arrive at a point where we all know something has to be done. there's no more let's do it some other time. >> right now, there's some outside pressure on congressional negotiators to raise the 18.4 cent per gallon federal gasoline tax, something that's being pushed by state highway officials and road builders across america. casinos are also pushing to get language legalizing online poker into a deal and governors hit hard by superstorm sandy or wanting more if federal aid to come to them through a potential deal. whatever agreement it made to avoid the fiscal cliff, it's going to be worth a lot of money and now is the time that groups are stepping up to see if they can get in on some of that. >> all right, everyone wants a little piece of the action and everyone wa

of each party in the senate. mitch mcconnell and harry reid. yesterday, at the two had a little dispute on the floor. they threatened filibuster change and he can to the floor to talk about that. the washington times says they had a rare head-to-head debate on the senate floor. take a look. [video clip] >> we believe that there should be one aspect of it changed and that most of the procedure be a -- simple as that. the american people agree. >> only ones who disagree think this is working well as the republican leader and the republicans in congress. >> up the majority leader will stay on the floor. you did not address that issue. >> but of course -- that statement is untrue and i do not accept that. >> that is the point. what the majority leader is saying is that he will break the rules in order to change the rules. it has been the case in the past that it took a supermajority of 67, which of course, meant most role changes occurred because they agreed to them. instead, what they are saying is that he will propose to change the rules with 51 votes meaning his side gets to decide what

. it started with harry reid and the simpson-bowles commission. i thought this was another commission where the work would be buried on some hard drive, but it turned out to be a historic effort and a game changer. mainly through the good work of erskine bowles and alan simpson, but hard work was put into this by 18 members, evenly divided between house and senate, democrat and republican. we voted for the final work product. then i was invited to join the gang of 6 to try to continue the conversation and that expanded to the gang of 8. has been going on for two years. that's awful lot of popcorn in mark warner's office, but it was a great indication -- education and in really talking through not just the reality of the deficit but the political reality of the deficit, which we have to be more sensitive to if we're looking for a solution. all all the way, some of my friends on the left came to visit. i recall one in particular, a labor leader who said, "what is a nice progress of like you doing in a place like this? why are you hanging with these people? you know they are up to no good ." i

is not for them and harry reid is not for the. at the state level -- you think taxing high income people does not affect growth? we are having an experiment. california. it is called maryland. i don't see any reason why we do not wait two years and see how california is doing with their new higher marginal tax rates on folks. and sales taxes on middle income people as well. illinois raising income taxes and sales taxes and maryland's -- a millionaire's tax for those -- they cannot leave because they are federal workers -- and those making a million dollars and walk across the border. they are testing obama's theories in the states. i think they should do it on a small state like vermont first and see how it works. but they wanted to california so we are doing california. texas and florida will give you an idea of how you can govern without an income tax -- not a 13% income-tax. people move. the kind of know what will happen -- indiana passed right to work, cutting taxes, giving half the kids in the state school choice, a voucher, a scholarship of $5,000. illinois just raise taxes so as not to

of pique senator reid were to say i'm not going to pass it. if you don't tpas like i said it ought to be pass, if you waive the budget and do it like i said; i don't think senator reid will do that. what will happen is it will go back to committee and senator reid would review it and see what we can do to fix it, which will be really easy compared to some of the difficult problems we have around here. the need would simply be to find $14 million a year. i've suggested a number of ways already, but those haven't been suggested. so we're talking about, if you think about it this way we're talking about finding savings somewhere in this monumental government of $14 million when, mr. chairman we plan to spend $370,000 million this year. by alabama standards that's a lot of money. another problem the bill is subject to the house blue slip. under the congressional budget office analysis and the president's own office of management and budget in the white house the duck stamp tax -- duck stamp is a tax. it simply is a tax. people can say it's not a tax. it's a tax. they have defined it as
